The 2013 Triple J Hottest 100 was announced on Australia Day 26 January 2014. It is the 21st countdown of the most popular songs of the year, as chosen by the listeners of Australian radio station Triple J. 1.49 million votes were cast for this countdown.
Voting commenced on 20 December 2013, and closed on 20 January 2014.
This is the fifth consecutive countdown that Illy has appeared in, having first had a song feature in the Hottest 100 of 2009.
Vance Joy joins Denis Leary (1993), Alex Lloyd (2001) and Bernard Fanning (2005) as the only outright solo countdown winners.
This is the only time in Hottest 100 history when the total number of votes tallied was less than the previous year, tallying in at over 1.4 million votes (2012 tallied over 1.5 million).
"Act Your Age" by Bliss N Eso samples the track "Act Yr Age" by Bluejuice, which came #20 in the 2011 list.
Illy's Ausmusic Month Medley featured four songs that made it into previous Hottest 100 lists: "Tomorrow" by Silverchair (#5 in 1994), "The Nosebleed Section" by Hilltop Hoods (#9 in 2003), "My Happiness" by Powderfinger (#1 in 2000) and "On Top" by Flume (#67 in 2012). The song also featured numerous references from various other songs.
